Chakras are the various focal points in the subtle body used in a variety of ancient meditation practices, collectively denominated as Tantra, or the esoteric or inner traditions of Indian religion, Chinese Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, as well as Japanese Esoteric Buddhism, and in postmodernity, in new age medicine, and originally psychologically adopted to the western mind through the assistance of “Carl Jung”.
Colors are called “warm” (reds and oranges) and “cool” (blues and greens) for a reason. Whether you know it or not, color has a big impact on how your brain sees the world. Did you know if you’re looking at sea green or lemon yellow, your brain feels a different emotion to each? It’s because of the impact color has on the brain, which leads to an impact on your feelings and senses. “Color impacts the brain because it can greatly affect our physiology, since it influences anxiety, pulse, blood flow and arousal etc. There’s a certain quality of being called “flow” that experts say is very beneficial for us. This refers to a state of being completely engaged in something to the point of being in a near-meditative state. It carries many of the benefits of mediation, leaving you much less stressed when you’re done. Hence the painting of chakras and being creative and in flow with brushes, lines and colours, releases stress and blockages, changes perspective.
